Fiendish Deeds

(Book #1 of The Joy of Spooking)
For Ages: 8 - 12
Joy Wells is a proud resident of Spooking, the terrible town at the top of the hideous hill. At the bottom of the hill is Darlington, a plastic suburban “paradise” where Joy and her brother go to school. When the mayor of Darlington announces that a water park is going to be constructed over the Spooking bog, Joy is horrified. She decides that she has to save the mysterious bog and the endangered species in it—but someone is determined to stop her! The Addams Family meets Carl Hiaasen in this quirky mystery with an environmental twist.

P.J. Bracegirdle

P.J. Bracegirdle has done everything from tending the stage door of a haunted old Scottish thaeter to pushing laundry carts through dark tunnels under an insane asylum.

He lives with his son and wife (illustrator Susan Mitchell) in Montreal--a spooky old town with a cemetery at the summit. For more information, visit www.pjbracegirdle.com and www.joyofspooking.com.
